I'm not using a template and do not want to, but have so far been unable to find a way using this library to suppress the mailchimp footer. I found the AutoFooter boolean in the Campaign Options class but setting that to false doesn't work for me, the footer is still visible.

Here's what I'm trying to do in C#, am I doing this completely wrong?

MailChimp.MCApi mailChimpAPI = new MailChimp.MCApi(mailChimpAPIKey, true);
MailChimp.Types.Campaign.Options campaignOptions = new MailChimp.Types.Campaign.Options(listID, MessageSubject, FromEmail, FromName, "Valued Customer");
campaignOptions.Title = CampaignName;
campaignOptions.AutoFooter = false// is this broken?
MailChimp.Types.Campaign.Content.Html html = new MailChimp.Types.Campaign.Content.Html{ Html = CampaignHTML, Text = CampaignText };
string campaignID = mailChimpAPI.CampaignCreate(MailChimp.Types.Campaign.Type.Regular, campaignOptions, html);

The campaign is created fine and the CampaignCreate returns its ID, but when I send it it gets sent with the standard MailChimp footer.

Also the CampaignHTML string above has the required footer fields in it at the end...


Any help is appreciated.

Hi. If your account is free, you cannot suppress their footer. Only paid accounts can manipulate this:

Well that makes sense :) Thanks for the reply.
